A group, the Zamfara State Concerned Citizens has said the people of the state have rejected the PDP and all that it represents before, during and even after the 2019 general elections. Hence, in the face of imminent 2023 defeat, the PDP has chosen to hide behind lies and false realities to save face.
In a statement at weekend, the Secretary General of the Zamfara State Concerned Citizens, Alhaji Musa Gusau, accused the PDP of trying to mislead the public, particularly APC supporters in the state, of false defection of its members to the PDP.
“We are calling on the PDP to desist from such lies henceforth because any attempt to mislead our members and supporters would be resisted in a legal way”, the group warned.
He said APC is consolidating to go into victory at the Supreme Court judgement review as a smarter, more united and stronger political force and urged all APC members to be steadfast because the Supreme Court would deliver justice and not judgement.
“While PDP wallows in its cooked up tales on the purported lies of defection to PDP in Zamfara, the leader of Zamfara APC Abdul’aziz Yari is focused on bettering the lives of APC supporters, addressing internal crisis of APC, revamping the structure of Zamfara APC, restoring our hopes in the APC and confronting the challenges we face as a party.
“As usual, it’s another day for Zamfara PDP to continue on their series of bogus lies against the former governor of Zamfara state His Excellency Abdul’aziz Yari and the All Progressives Congress, APC, in Zamfara.
“This time around is another episode of fabricated lies and fake stories about the defection of 41 APC chieftains Including Yari’s relatives from APC to PDP In Talatan Mafara, the home town of former governor Yari, which Zamfara PDP is trying to portray as true story to the general public, when they are aware that they are balant lies concocted by unserious and expired politicians just to gain some cheap political point.
“Which among the so-called defectors can be regarded as an ardent potential politician even in his polling unit not to talk of the ward or local government of Talata-Mafara? Again, which among the so-called defectors can be described as a usual chieftain of APC in Talata-Mafara? Who among them is even part of the APC local government party structure in Talata-Mafara?
“Why was it that PDP failed to mention the names of these so-called 41 chieftains of APC thay have recieved as defectors from APC Talata-Mafara? Furthermore, why was it that it failed to mention names of Yari’s relatives or family members that have defected to PDP in Talata-Mafara? It’s clear now that people are using defection strategy to defraud governor Bello Matawalle and Zamfara PDP”, he said.
The scribe said there was not a single bigwig of theAPC in Talata-Mafara that has dumped the party and joined PDP, noting that recently all the APC chieftains from Talata-Mafara visited Yari just to let him know that they are still committed and remain in support of him and Zamfara APC.
